Shmups Skill Test is Now Available With Contest!
Degica Games is pleased to announce that the second wave of Triangle Services’s shoot-’em-up collection, Shooting Love 20XX, is coming June 16th to Steam as MINUS ZERO! To celebrate the release of the previous (first) wave, Shmups Skill Test, Degica Games is hosting two skill competitions.
Triangle Service’s MINUS ZERO is a shooter that focuses on a tried-and-true shoot-’em-up weapon: the lock-on laser. It’s shoot-’em-up purity: just you, your lock-on laser, and a whole bunch of enemies. As long as you continue to blast away at the waves of enemies, you’ll maintain invincibility, but if you lose track of your position amongst the explosions and neon glow, you’ll soon find that invincibility can be fleeting.
MINUS ZERO Features:
- Lock onto invincibility in this abstract, minimalist shoot-’em-up
- Glowing neon aesthetic that actually adds to the challenge
- Replay support
- Electronica soundtrack that builds upon itself as you progress
- Includes Steam Achievements, Leaderboards, and Cloud saves
Following MINUS ZERO, two more waves will be released containing TRIZEAL Remix, and EXZEAL respectively. With these four waves defeated, the Shooting Love 20XX collection will be yours.

Shmups Skill Test Contests:
Celebrating the release of Shmups Skill Test, there are two Shmups Skill Test contests. You may enter both.
Lowest Gamer Age Contest Rules: Contestants will play in Solo Test mode. The 3 lowest “gamer age” entries submitted in Solo Test mode win. Matching gamer ages will be tie-broken by highest scores. Replays must be uploaded for entries to be counted.
Prizes: All three winners each get a TRIZEAL Remix Steam key (given before official launch!)
Mystery Age Contest Rules: Contestants will play in Solo Test mode. The first three contestants to achieve one of three different mystery ages and post their screenshot to Twitter mentioning and following @DegiGames and using #ShmupAge win. Once a mystery age is achieved, no other contestant can submit the same age. The mystery ages are Fujino-san’s age, the amount of years since Gradius 3 (the game that inspired Fujino-san to design games) came out, and the amount of shots a second that Takahashi Meijin is famous for firing.
Prizes: All three winners each get a beautiful, signed poster covered in XIIZEAL and DELTAZEAL ships.
Both contests start at Shmups Skill Test’s launch, 6/09 US (6/10 Japan), and end at 6pm PT on 6/16 in the US (10am on 6/17 in Japan).
Shmups Skill Test is now available for PC on Steam.
